Shakespeare Workshop

We we were delighted to have the Northumberland Theatre Company come into school to perform extracts from Romeo and Juliet followed up with a workshop designed to help our year 11 students develop their understanding and knowledge of William Shakespeare’s tragic tale of love and hate.

Pupils from English and Drama worked together to analyse key elements of the plot and develop a deeper understanding of the characters and their motivations throughout the play. Some lucky students (and Mr Douglas) even performed extracts of the play with such flair that a life treading the boards at The Globe could be awaiting them!
